Customizing a Wreath

Remember my new boxwood wreath from this post? Well, it sat patiently awaiting to be spruced up and loved. I had planned to add a monogram, inspired by this beauty.

With the help of the hubby and his tools, we created this "F" monogram. I painted it a charcoal grey and gently distressed it. Here is the finished product:

My love affair with Curly Willow branches continues. I added them, plus some faux fall berries, and a black ribbon. I may change the ribbon to a burnt orange one, but haven't found what I'm looking for yet. The decor was tied on with rafia ribbon, and easily changeble with the season.

Nice to mark another project off the to-do list!

Linking to my favorite parties!

Great looking wreath, Andrea! I see you have a "handy hubby" also. ;)

Love, love. love the boxwood wreath. They always look wonderful and are not associated with any particular season - making them a great year round choice. Nice touch adding the initial.
